Canal Restoration at Dymock


Canal Restoration at Dymock

Work on the Canal at Dymock has progressed sporadically over many years, starting back in 2004 when the Trust were able to persuade Gloucestershire County Council to restore a road bridge over the line of the canal, rather than just infill the space beneath.

More recently, the Trust sucessfully negotiated with lanners and developers to ensure that restoration of the Canal featured significantly in plans for a new housing development.

More details on these can be seen in the links below.

Future plans for Dymock

Onging maintenance is vital, especially during ther warmer months, and new volunteer assistance is always welcomed.

Task include 

  • Keeping the site neat and tidy for walking
  • Cutting grass with the Trust’s Grillo mower
  • Ensuring the pump is maintaining the desired water level in the recently built winding pool alongside the new housing

The Trust also maintains a watching brief over the line of the canal, and in particular strives to influence any future plans for development likely to affect the path of the canal and its future restoration.
